The Clerk announced that all the Aldermen 
eleet had filed their official oaths in his office. 

MINUTES. 

Aid. Hildreth moved that the minutes of the 
regular meeting held May 1st and of the ad- 
journed meeting held May 5th, be approved 
without being read. 

The motion prevailed. 

His Honor the Mayor, submitted the follow- 
ing veto message: 

To the City Council of the City of Chicago— 
Gentlemen : I herewith return to you, with- 
out my approval, an ordinance entitled, "Ordi- 



nance concerning Brush Electric Light Com- 
pany of Chicago, passed April 24, 1882," which 
was reconsidered, amended, and passed May 1, 
1882, for reasons hereinafter set forth. 

It is with considerable regret that I feel con- 
strained by my duty to do this. I believe elec- 
tric light to be the coming artificial light of 
cities, and am anxious to see it inaugurated in 
Chicago as rapidly as possible. After this 
original ordinance passed, I candidly stated to 
the projectors of the enterprise that I objected 
to it for the reason that the ordinance did not 
force the wires underground; that it contra- 
vened ordinances in existence; that it granted 
a perpetual franchise; that it precluded by its 
necessary operation any competition by other 
electric-light companies; that it did not protect 
the city in the event of the wires being here- 
after ordered underground, and that if an 
underground system was at present impracti- 
cable, then a license to string overground wires 
should be only temporary. I agreed to with- 
hold a veto until a reconsideration could be 
moved so as to permit amendments to be made 
which would meet the objections. The ordi- 
nance was reconsidered, amendments were 
hurriedly made and inconsiderately passed, 
leaving the amended ordinance far worse than 
the original. I do not believe that was from 
design, but was the result of hasty action. The 
result, however, remains. 

I need not call your attention to the fact that 
electricity is the most subtle, powerful, and 
arbitrary of all the known forces of nature. 
The thunder's deep roll inspires all men with a 
feeling of awe; its sudden clap fills the bravest 
with a species of fear. Heaven's deep-mouthed 
artillery is heard close by only in the midst of 
the storm, when the air is filled with untold 
millions of rain drops, and all nature around is 
wet and dripping. Every raindrop helps to 
diffuse the powerful electric current, and each

wet tree and moist housewall aids in carrying 
it harmless to the earth. 

A Brush electric-light battery of sufficient 
sti-ength to light the business portion of the 
South Division is ten times more powerful than 
all the batter ies in use for commercial purposes 
throughout the entire city. A broken wire on 
one of the company's circuits «may let loose a 
monster carrying death upon our streets with 
no cloud to warn us of our danger, and bids us 
be on our guard, and when all nature may be 
parched and dry, Sir William Thompson says, 
no human being can stand an electric current 
equal to 250 volts. A volt is equal in intensity 
to one cuu of a battery. This Brush Company 
must use machines having an electromatical 
force of from 2,400 to 8,000 volts, the latter 
being the most economical. Such a machine 
will, therefore, exercise a force thirty times 
stronger than will be necessary to kill a man. 
This ordinance requires no stronger chain upon 
the monster than the cupidity of the corpora- 
tion may deem necessary. It is not the part of 
wisdom so to trust a soulless money-loving 
corporation. 

Our firemen are brave and rush into the 
midst of crumbling walls and crackling flames 
when duty calls. They hurry at a speed of a 
mile a minute in the darkest night to the assist- 
ance of a burning sister city. But let them 
know that a large mass of powder is stored in 
a burning building and they fall back in ter- 
ror. Strong powerful electric conductors along 
our streets, and each fireman erecting a ladder 
or wielding an axe close by will feel that he is 
treading upon a powder magazine, and will be- 
come unnerved. A falling wall or a runaway 
team is alarming at best, but how much more 
alarming wnen it may cause a wire to drop in 
a crowded street carrying death to the unsus- 
pecting. Gentlemen, I want more light, but I 
am unwilling to unnecessarily let loose the 
monster lightning upon our packed thorough- 
fares. Why should we be in such a hurry to 
run such risks? Fourteen miles of underground 
wires are now laid in New York City, and have 
been carefully tested, and in a little while two 
square miles in the lower part of that great 
city will be supplied with such underground 
conductors, and 28,000 lamps will be lighted 
this coming summer. Underground wires light 
the Thames embankment in London and a part 
of Paris. A committee of the New York Leg- 
islature last week reported a bill prohibiting 
overground conductors throughout that great 
State, and yet this ordinance gives a franchise 
to "The Brush Electric-Light Company" to run 
overground wires throughout Chicago for the 
next twenty-five years, and does not even force 
it to have those wires insulated. It gives the 
Department of Public Works supervision over 
the manner of constructing the lines, but not of 
constructing the wires or their material. This 
will be left to the mercy of a money-making 
corporation. The people of Chicago want elec- 
tric light, and they want it throughout the 
city, but this ordinance permits this company 
to string its wires along such streets and alleys 
as it may wish, picking the cream of the city 
and stopping where it may chot se, gathering all 
the fat and letting some other company pick up 
the lean. Under this ordinance this company 
can erect its poles along both sides of any 
street and alley it may choose, thus debarring 
any competing company from such street and 
alley. It is true you may license other compa- 
nies to use its poles on payment of an equita- 
ble share of the cost of the same. Wno is to 
determine what may or may not be equitable? 
Perhaps the cost of the large lobby which has 
crowded this floor will enter into such equities. 
Why did the amendment not say pro rata share 
of such cost, as I suggested? I do not like the 
word equitable in that connection. 

The ordinance should have left to the Coun- 
cil some rights as to determining when the light 



should be carried to different parts of the city, 
and should have more definitely fixed the 
terms on which competition should be allowed. 
You exacted the first right when you passed 
the new gas -ordinance. Why should you not 
have been equally exacting with this com- 
pany? 

There is another objection to an overground 
system of electric light conductors, which to 
my mind is of considerable force. A lar ge city 
whose streets are lighted by electricity may 
at a given moment be deprived of light by an 
organized band of thieves or rioters, and the 
city be thus left at their mercy. A dozen men 
can from windows or from the ground cut the 
main wires in different parts of the city at a 
given time and easily escape detection. This 
objection has been by the Brush people ac- 
knowledged to me to have no little weight. An 
underground system will not thus be liable to 
being cut. . „ 

But I said this amended ordinance is far 
worse than the original. You will please give 
me your closest attention on this point, In 
considering the rights granted, you must con- 
sider the ordinance as a whole section. Section 
1 fixes the term of their franchise at twenty- 
five years. Section 2 gives the right to erect 
poles and string overground conductors until 
an underground system be perfected. Section 
5 says the "privileges granted art; subject to all 
general ordinances which are now in existence 
or may hereafter be passed in relation to the 
erecting, maintenance, continuance, or discon- 
tinuance of poles or lines of wire or electric 
conductors in the streets," etc., etc. 

There now exists an ordinance which forbids 
any poles to be erected. This present ordi- 
nance is in direct contravention thereof, al- 
though it says it is subject thereto. What con- 
struction must, therefore, in this respect, be 
put upon this ordinance? Necessarily that such 
restrictive ordinances do not apply to this com- 
pany in so far as regards ordinances now in ex- 
istence, and by necessary implication as to ordi- 
nances which may hereafter be passed. Now, 
if such restrictive ordinances in existence or 
hereafter to be passed d© not apply to this com- 
pany, what then follows? Necessarily that 
this ordinance gives the Brush Electric-Light 
Company the right to "construct and maintain 
in the public streets, avenues, and alleys of the 
City of Chicago for the term of twenty-five 
consecutive years from the date of the ap- 
proval" thereof a line or lines of wire for the 
transmission of electricity for purposes of 
light and power to be supported by poles. It 
is true it says said lines of wire shall be put 
underground, provided that until sueh under- 
ground system be perfected they shall be tem- 
porarily supported by poles. Who shall or can 
say when the underground system becomes 
perfected? You have not reserved to_your- 
selves this right so to say. You have not left 
such right to the Mayor, or to any other 
officer of the city. You have left it simply to this 
company "so to say, and no power except a court 
could force it to speak. Courts have strange 
hankerings after vested rights. You have given 
a vested right for twenty-five years, therefore, 
to this company, which cannot be divested of 
such right except by tedious and costly litiga- 
tion, if at all. Telegraphy was inaugurated 
thirty-eight years ago. Yet year by year new 
discoveries are being made in telegraphy, and 
the wisest electricians tell us that the study of 
electricity is almost in its infancy. Perfection 
in an underground system of electric conduct- 
ors will not be found, or certainly not be ac- 
knowledged, in your day or generation. This 
ordinance, therefore, gives to this company a 
franchise for twenty-five years to erect poles 
and string conductors thereon; to do this on 
such streets as it may choose and no other; to 
have its wires insulated or not, at its will; to 
let other companies use its poles on its own

8 Tbecame convinced of the correctness of pay 
views as herein expressed, but I fell unwilling 
to act without first submitting them to Mr. 
Adams, the Corporation Counsel. This I have 
done, and he says he has no doubt whatever of 
the correctness of the positions taken by me. 

Pass a proper ordinance for an underground 
electric. light conductor and the Brush Elec- 
tric-Light Company will give you light, and 
safe light. If they tell you they will not accept 
an underground ordinance, then say to them 
that other companies stand ready to do so. 
This company has refrained from asking an 
underground ordinance for several months be- 
cause they thought they had a compliant Coun- 
cil ready to grant them a cheaper one. 

They tell us that they have tound a perfectly 
insulated wire. Then they have solved the 
Question of an underground system. When 
they joined forces with the Mutual Union some 
months since we were told that perfect insula- 
tion was not discovered, and that wires being 
harmless should be allowed overground. Now 
that they have found perfect insulation, there- 
fore their dangerous wires should be strung 
overhead. I feel as the Satyr did. I do not 
fancy this breath, which is hot or cold at will. 

If perfect insulation has been found, then 
put the wires underground, which such insu- 
lation renders practicable. If perfect insula- 
tion be not found, then put the wires where 
they will do no harm.

The following is the report: 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of 

Chicago in City Council assembled: 

Your Committee heretofore appointed by the 
Mayor, under and by virtue of a certain reso- 
lution, passed by your honorable body April 
17th, 1882, to confer with the officials of the 
Western Indiana Railway, the citizens inter- 
ested and the Mayor, with the view of ascer- 
taining what adjustment, if any, can be made to 
stop litigation, and definitely determine the lo- 
cation of the Western Indiana Railroad, and 
report as soon as convenient to this Council, 
beg leave to report that heretofore, to- wit: 
April 25th, A. D. 1882, your Committee held an 
open meeting, the time and place of which had 
been previously noticed in the daily papers, 
for the purpose of giving citizens interested in 
the question an opportunity of expressing their 
views in relation thereto, and that your Com- 
mittee, and also the individual members there- 
of, have taken pains to ascertain the views of 
the public, and of individuals interested, in 
relation to the subject matter referred to taa 
Committee. 

Your Committee have also conferred, as di- 
rected by said resolution, with the Mayor and 
the officers of the Chicago & Western Indiana 
Railroad Company. There appears to be a 
great diversity of views in relation to the mat- 
ter; some being in favor of preventing the 
company from constructing its track north of 
Twelfth street ; some being in favor of a com- 
promise, making Taylor street the northern 
terminus of the road; others expressing a 
willingness to a compromise, making Polk 
street its northern terminus, and some being in 
favor of Van Buren street as such northern 
terminus. 

Your Committee are of the opinion that the 
owners of a majority of the property between 
Twelfth and Van Buren streets, which would 
be affected by the construction and operation 
of the road between these streets, are in favor 
of a compromise, the majority of those who 
would favor a compromise, however, being in 
favor of making Taylor street the northern 
terminus of the road. 

Your Committee, in conferring with the offi- 
cers of the railroad company, have ascertained 
that the company will not accept any compro- 
mise making Taylor street the northern termi- 
nus ©f the road. While the railroad company 
declines to make any express offer of compro- 
mise, your Committee has ascertained to its 
satisfaction and reports that a compromise 
would be accepted by the company on the fol- 
lowing terms, viz: 

1. That the company will relingmish all 
claim of right to occupy or use for railway 
purposes, any of the following described ter- 
ritory, namely, any territory north of the south 
line of Harrison street, any territory between 
Twelfth and Harrison streets, and east of the 
west line ©f Third avenue, any territory bet- 
ween Twelfth and Harrison streets, and west 
of the east line of Clark street. 

2. That the company will relinguish all 
claim to occupy or use for railway purposes 
any territory between Sixteenth and Twenty- 
first streets, except that described as follows. 

Commencing at the intersection of the north 
line of Twenty first street, proceed westward- 
ly with the right of way of said company on 
Stewait avenue, thence east along the north 
line of Twenty-first street, to the center of the 
south line of bloek 40, thence north to the north 
line of Twentieth street, thence east to the 
right ©f way of the Lake Shore & Michigan 
Southern Railway Company, thence north to 
the south line of Sixteenth street, thence west 
to the Chicago river, thenee southerly along

[1882. 



the east bank of the Chicago river to 
Stewart avenue, thence southerly to the place 
of beglning. 

3. That the company will never construct or 
operate any railroad *tra».k across Eighteenth 
street, except under a viaduct spanning such 
track. 

4. That the company in the construction of 
its tracks north of the south line of Twelfth 
street, will so depress them that viaducts may 
be constructed over the tracks on the east and 
west streets crossed by the tracks, with suit able 
approaches, commencing west of the west 
line of State street. 

5. That the privileges granted to the com- 
pany by the ordinance of September 15,1879, 
shall, except so far as changed by the forego- 
ing, be ratified and confirmed. 

Yeur Committee farther report that by the 
ordinance of September 15, 1879, the privilege 
was granted to the said railroad company to fix 
its northern terminus as far north as Van Buren 
street, which privilege the said company claims 
to have exercised, and that it still has the right 
to operate its road to Van Buren street, and 
that whether it has such right or not is one of 
the questions in dispute and being litigated be- 
tween the city and said company. Also, that 
by Section 1 of the said ordinance of Septem- 
ber 15, 1879, the privilege was granted in terms 
to said company to lay down, maintain and 
operate a railroad, with one or more tracks and 
such switches, sidings and turnouts as might 
be necessary, from the intersection of Grove 
street and Stewart avenue, over and upon such 
lots, lands and property as the company owned 
or might thereafter acquire by lease, purchase, 
condemnation or otherwise, unto such terminus 
as it might establish between the east bank of 
the south branch of the Chicago river and the 
west side of State street, and between Six- 
teenth street and the south line of Van Buren 
street. Section 2 of the ordinance granted the 
right to cross all intervening streets. 

It will be seen that the above description in- 
cludes all the territory bounded by State street 
on the east, Sixteenth street on the south, the 
Chicago river on the west and Van Buren street 
on the north. Within this territory is the strip 
between Sixteenth and Twenty-first streets 
and east of the right of way of the Lake Shore 
& Michigan Southern Railway Company, and 
the land between the center line of block 40 on 
the west and such right of way on the east, 
from the occupancy of which the Chicago & 
Western Indiana Railroad Company would be 
excluded by the compromise above suggested. 

The Corporation Counsel has, by the request 
of your Committee, prepared a bill for an ordi- 
nance embodying the terms of a compromise as 
above stated, which is herewith submitted and 
made a part of this report. 

The resolution under which your Committee 
was appointed does not seem to require any 
recommendation, and we feel that we have 
fully discharged our duty in reporting the re- 
sult of our investigation to your honorable body 
for such action on your part as you may deem 
proper in the premises. 

S WAYNE WICKERSHAM, 

Chairman. 

Since the above report was prepared, we have 
received a communication from Mr. J. B. 
Brown, President of the Western Indiana 
Railroad, a copy of which is made a part of this 
report, and from which it will appear that the 
company will accept Harrison street as a point 
of compromise. 

All of which is respectfully submitted. 

S WAYNE WICKERSHAM, 

Chairman. 

Chicago, May 18, 1882. 
Dr. Wickersham, Chairman : 

Dear Sir— Since the conference had be- 
tween this company and your Committee, I 



have submitted to the different railroad com- 
panies coming into the city over our line, what 
appeared to us to be the view of a portion of 
your committee as to a point of compromise to 
be agreed on for the location of our passenger 
depot, namely : Polk street. After considering 
the matter they were unanimous in the opinion 
that a station at Polk street would not afford 
them the facilities which they needed to rake 
care of their passenger business, but on further 
consideration agreed to compromise the matter 
by the location of a passenger station at Har- 
rison street. 

I therefore advise you of the result of the 
conference, that you may, if necessary, have a 
meeting of your committee to take into consid- 
eration the above decision. 

Yours truly, 

J. B. Brown, President. 

Whereas, certain differences have arisen be- 
tween the City of Chicago and the Chicago & 
Western Indiana Railroad Company, as to the 
rights of the said company under an ordinance 
passed by the City Council September 15, 1879, 
and whereas litigation is now pending between 
the city and said company in respect to said 
matters of difference, as appears from the 
record in the case of The City of Chicago vs. 
The Chicago & Western Indiana Railroad Com- 
pany, now pending in the Appellate Court of 
Illinois for the First District; and whereas t 
the public interest requires that the differences 
and disputes aforesaid shall be settled at the 
earliest possible time, therefore, for the pur- 
pose of settling the same and by way of com- 
promise : 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago:

Railroad Company shall not occupy or use for

ed territory in the City of Chicago— namely :

Twelfth and Harrison streets and east of the 
west line of Third avenue ; also all that territory 
between Twelfth and Harrison streets and 
west of the east line Clark street. 

Sec. 2. The said Chicago & Western Indiana 
Railroad Company shall not use or occupy for 
railroad purposes any of the territory between 
Sixteenth street and the north line of Twenty- 
first street, outside of the territory bounded as

tion of the north line of Twenty-first street 
proceed westwardly with the right of way 
of said company on Stewart avenue; thence 
east along the north line of Twenty-first street 
to the center of the south line of Bloek 40; 
thence north to the north line of Twentieth 
street, thence east to the right of way of the 
Lake Shore & Michigan Southern Railway Com- 
pany ; thence north to the south line of Six- 
teenth street; thence west to the Chicago 
River; thence southerly along the east bank of 
the Chicago River to Stewart avenue; and 
thence south to the beginning. 

Sec. 3. The said Chicago & Western Indiana 
Railroad Company shall not construct, maintain 
or operate any railway tracks across Eighteenth 
street in said city except under a viaduct, and 
the said railway company, if it shall construct 
any railway tracks north of the south line of 
Twelfth street in said city, shall depress such 
railway tracks at least three feet below the 
grade of the streets across which such tracks 
shall be constructed, so that viaducts may be 
constructed with proper approaches commenc- 
ing west of the west line of State street, and in 
the east and west streets crossed by said tracks 
north of the south line of Twelfth street. 

Sec. 4. The privileges granted to the Chicago 
& Western Indiana Railroad Companv by the 
ordinance passed Sept. 35, 1879, are hereby rati- 
fied and confirmed, except as hereinbefore 
mentioned.

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City oj 

Chicago in Council assembled: 

Your Committee on Judiciary to whom was 
referred the petition of McNichols & 
Edgeworth for damages, etc., having had the 
same under advisement, beg leave to report 
that they recommended the passage of the fol- 
lowing order. ' 

Ordered, That the City Comptroller pay to 
Messrs. McNichols & Edgworth the sum of one 
thousand dollars ($1,000) from any money in the 
City Treasury not oiherwise appropt mted, to 
be in full of all claims and demands. 

W. S. Young, Jr., Chairman. 

We concur in the above report. ' 

John E. Dalton, Chairman. 

Department of Public Works, t 
Chicago, March 31, 1882. \ 

Dear SIR— I return herewith the petition of 
Messrs. McNichols and Edgewoi th, transmitted 
to me some days ago, together with the follow - 
i,,cr statement of facts connected therewith. 

Included in contract No. 2, of 1:80, awarded 
to Martin McNichols and Patrick Edgeworth, 
was a six-feet main sewer in Wallace street, 
from the south branch of the Chicago river at 
or near the foot of Wallace street, and depend, 
ing upon this main sewer as and for an outlet 
were sewers covered in the same contract in 
Wallace street, from Twenty-sixth street to 
Thirty-first street; also, in McGregor street, 
Butler street, Twenty-fifth street, Hanover 
street, Twenty-seventh street, Twenty-eighth 
street, Napoleon place, Shields avenue, and in 
Thirty-first street. In the construction of all 
sewerage work it is customary, for the proper 
protection of the work and likewise as a matter 
of economy, to commence operations at the 
lowest point— at the outfall, in fact— and thence 
to continue through the various ramifications to 
the highest point in the system included in the 
contract. In order to reach the river at the 
foot of Wallace street it was necessary to pass 
through property owned by Messrs. Murry 
Nelson & Co., on Archer avenue, and upon 
which Wallace street abutted. When active 
operations were inaugurated it was assumed 
this right of way would be obtained without 
much trouble ; it was in faet regarded as a fore- 
gone conclusion, and the work was laid out, 
commenced and prosecuted upon this assump- 
tion. After considerable useless negotiation 
with the owners, condemnatory proceedings 
were instituted before Judge Gary, which 
were subsequently abandoned owing to some 
defect in the pleadings or papers. This, of 
course, left the work half finished and in a 
bad shape generally, due to the lack of drain- 
age, and not only compelled considerable change 
in the manner of doing the work, but also 
largely increased the cost of doing it, all of 
which fell upon the contractors, and unjustly 
so because when they made the estimate upon 
which their tender was based, they were given 
to understand, as were all bidders, that the 
outlet at the foot of Wallace street would un- 
doubtedly be obtained; that it was not was no 
fault of these contractors, and that it certainly 
o-reatly enhanced the cost to them of doing the 
work it is unquestioned, requiring the use of 
pumps and a largely increased force of men to 
attend to the bailing and drainiag alone, to say 
nothing of the loss of time incurred by the 
masons and helpers due to the repeated influx 



and often continued pressure of water in the 
trenches ti> an extent sufficient to compel a 
temperary suspension of operations. The 
records of the work show a labor account on 
1,034 feet of six-feet sewer and 2,614 feet of 
five-feet sewer alone of about $5,800, which I 
would regard as some 18 or20 per cent, in excess 
of what such work should have cost under 
proper conditions. 

The item of taking up the old sewer in Mc- 
Gregor street is not legitimate and should not 
be allowed. The remainder of the elaim, 
amounting to .$1,000, I consider just, and it 
should be paid accordingly. 
I am, &c, very truly yours, 

G. Howard Ellers, 
Chief Engineer Sewerage Department. 
Hon. W. S. Young, Jr., 

Chairman, &c, &c. 

City Law Department, \ 
Chicago, April 24, 1882. j 
W. S. Young, Jr., Chairman Judiciary Com- 

Dear Sir: I have received the papers refer- 
red to me by your Committee in reference to 
the petition of Martin McNichols & Patrick 
Edgeworth. It is true as stated in Col. Ellers' 
communication that the proceedings for the 
condemnation of the right of way through the 
property of Messrs. Murry Nelson & Co., had 
to be dismissed, the dismissal was owing to two 
causes— first, because the court was of opinion 
that the ordinance purporting to authorize the 
proceedings was defective and secondly, 
beeause the damages claimed and testified to 
by Mr. Nelson and his witnesses, were so enor- 
mous as to render it inexpedient to proceed. 
As to the matter of increased cost to the 
contractors by reason of the failure to construct 
the sewer in Wallace street, I know nothing 
personally, but have no doubt that the Com- 
mittee may with entire safety i ely on the 
statement of Col. Ellers in relation to the 
matter. Very respectfully, 

Francis Adams, 

Corporation Counsel. 

ALSO. 

The same committee, to whom was referred 
the petitition of Cornelius Sullivan for a lease 
of Atwood place farm, submitted a report re- 
commending the passage of an accompanying 
order. .

over and published. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the report. 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi- 
cago in Council assembled : 

Your Committee on Judiciary, to whom was 
referred the petition of Cornelius Sullivan con- 
cerning the leasing of the property known as 
the Atwood place farm, having had the same 
under advisement beg leave to report that they 
recommend the passage of the following .order. 

Ordered. That the Comptroller be and he is 
hereby directed to accept the bid of Cornelius 
Sullivan, to wit: the sum of $1015.00 for the 
Atwood place farm, and to make a lease of said 
farm to the said Cornelius Sullivan, from May

« SCHOOLS. 

The Committee on Schools, t© whom was re- 
ferred a communication from the Board of 
Education, requesting the purchase of a school 
site, corner of Paulina and Walnut streets, and 
a remonstrance against the purchase of said 
site, submitted majority and minority reports 
thereon. 

Aid. Dalton moved that the reports be laid 
over and published. 
So ordered. 

The following are the reports: 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of 
Chicago in City Council assembled: 
Tour Committee on Schools, to whom was 

referred a communication of the Board of Ed- 



ucation, asking for the cqncurrence in the 
action of the Board by this Council, in refer- 
ence to the purchase of a school site on Walnut 
and Paulina streets, having had the same 
under advisement, beg leave to report and 
recommend the passage of the following order: 
Ordered, That the Mayor and Comptroller 
be and the same are hereby directed to pur- 
chase for the use of the school fund, for the 
sam of twenty-one thousand five hundred dol- 
lars ($21,500), the following described property, 
to-wit:. 

Two hundred feet at the southwest corner 
of Walnut and Paulina streets, by a depth of 
U2M feet on Paulina street, known as lots 
25, 26, 27 and 28, of block 47, of Canal Trustees 
Subdivision of Section 7, Township 39, North 
Range 14 East of the Third Principal Meridian, 
the purchase price to be paid when the proper 
abstracts and clear title have been furnished 
to the city. 

We further recommend that a remonstrance 
against the purchase of said site, which has 
been referred to your Committee, be placed on 
file. 

John E. Geohegan, 
Thad. Dean, 
Arthur Dixon. 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of 

Chicago in Council assembled : 

The minority of your Committee on Schools, 
to which body the communication from the 
Board of Education, requesting authority to 
purchase a school site on the corner of Walnut 
and Paulina streets, was referred to, herewith 
beg to submit their minority report in dissent 
from the report of the majority, and beg to 
submit the following reasons in support of 
their non-concurrence: 

1. The minority wish, at the outset, to fore- 
stall any such construction of their motives, as 
that they are opposed to additional school priv- 
ileges for the people of the west part of the 
city. On the contrary, they believe an addi- 
tional school is immediately and urgently 
needed in this section, and they are compelled 
to believe, that had it not been for interested 
motives on the part of property owners, some 
resisting the location of a school site in prox- 
imity to their homes, others seeking t© sell a 
particular lot at a high figure, regardless of its 
adaptations to the purpose, not only would a 
school lot have been secured, well suited to the 
wants of the large population now without 
school privileges, but that a school house 
would long since have been built. 

2. The minority insist that the proposed lot 
is exactly where a school is not needed, and 
that to locate a sehool on this site would leave 
the pbople who really need a school, just as 
destitute as they now are, or else to seek a 
school for their children by sending them a 
mile or more, and across several of the most 
crowded thoroughfares and the Washington 
street boulevard to find one. A glance at the 
map shows that the proposed site is directly m 
the midst of a group of five schools— the Hayes, 
Lincoln street, Armour street, Elizabeth street 
and the Brown— all provided with first-class 
buildings, and not one of which is more than 
six blocks distant from the proposed site. A 
school located here would make six schools 
in a radius of half a mile, while, in the terri- 
tory between Robey street and Western ave- 
nue, and Walnut and Adams streets a territory 
just about equal and nearly as populous, there 
is not a single school. To compel the pupils 
of this latter district to walk an average of a 
mile, and to cross on their way to and from 
school those crowded thoroughfares, to get to 
a school house in a district that has already a 
lion's share of sehool privileges, the minority 
believes would be gross injustice, and exposure 
of the life and education of the children, solely 

I in the interest of lot owners. It is plain that 



July 3,1 



60 



[1882. 



a school in both the loealities described cannot 
be along time, if ever be expected. The mi- 
nority of your Committee therefore are in- 
favor of placing the school where it is most 
needed and where it of right belongs. 

3 The minority believe that the price of the 
lot' in question is at least 20 per cent, too high, 
and they have reliable information that within 
the territory where there is a real and urgent 
need of a school, property can be had at least 
20 or 25 per cent, below the figures at which 
the proposed lot is offered. 

4 Finally, the minority are confirmed in 
this view, by the fact that the proposed let is 
not the choice of a considerable number of the 
Board of Education. They have information 
that the recommendation to purchase this lot 
was passed hastily, when three members of 
the Board, two West Side members and the 
Chairman of the Committee on Districts and 
Boundaries was absent, the measure to pur- 
chase being carried by but nine votes, one 
vote more than a majority. The minority 
theretore believe that the proper course to 
be pursued with this matter is to send it back 
with the remonstrance and plat to the Board 
oi Education, and if, after a further considera- 
tion, that body again recommends the purchase, 
it will deserve the consideration of this 
Council. _ , ... . 

All of which is respectfully submitted. 

J. M. Qtjinn. 
Edward P. Burke.

REPORTS OP CITY OPPICER8. 

His Honor, the Mayor, submitted his report 
of pardons from the House of Correction 
during the week ending July 15, 1882, which was 

Placed on file. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message : 
To the City Council of the City of Chicago: 

I herewith return to you without my ap- 
proval thereto, an ordinance passed July 10th 
inst., amending Sec. 1,520 of the Municipal Code 
of Chicago, with my reasons therefor. When 
this amendment was under discussion in Coun- 
cil I thought it a proper one, but on close ex- 
amination I find I did not apprehend its pro- 
visions, and I find also that the reeord of the 
Clerk differs from my recollection of the pro- 
viso, which was made verbally. Sec. 1,520 
makes it obligatory upon street-ears to stop, 
for taking on and letting off passengers wher- 



ever so desired to do. This frequently compels 
such stoppages to the great detriment of the 
great majority of the passengers, causing de- 
lays to the general public not compensated for 
by the individual benefit. A cast-iron prohibi- 
tion against stopping anywhere else than at 
street intersections would, however, be far 
more injurious to the people. This amendment 
is thus prohibitory, for it says that cars shall 
stop only at street intersections. I do not 
think you so understood it. 

Although I am not an admirer of corporations 
and believe them too often selfish, yet I think 
that such as street-car companies have inter- 
ests identical with those of the public, and 
although they do not always bend their efforts 
to the accommodation of the people, their own 
interests generally force them so to do, and 
cause them to adopt rules beneficiary to the 
majority of their patrons. Some discretion 
should therefore be allowed them. A positive 
prohibition to stopping a car in the middle of a 
block would in inclement weather work great 
hardship to old or infirm passengers, and to 
women with children. The bulk of the pas- 
sengers reach the cars from cross streets. 
Very frequently such passengers are not no- 
ticed by tne driver or conduetor until the car 
has already passed the crossing some feet. In 
such cases the passenger would under this 
amendment would have to await the next car, 
or would have to walk to the next intersection 
to his own great inconvenience, and to the 
delay of the car which awaits him. Again, a 
passenger fails to have the car stopped at the 
intersection he desires, owing to the car being 
frosted, or to the fact that the windows are 
fastened or wet with storm, preventing him 
or her from seeing where the car is at the time. 
Such passengers under this amendment would 
be compelled to go a block out of his or her 
way, and then to face that much more of storm

or rain. It is in bad weather that such mis- 
takes usually occur. Under this amendment 
the car can stop only at intersections of streets, 
and no discretion is left to conductors. The 
proviso permits a car in long blocks to stop only 
at each 600 feet. My recollection is that in 
blocks 600 feet in length cars should stop at the 
middle of such blocks. The Clerk failed to 
catch the verbal proviso as it was finally ac- 
cepted by the mover and agreed to by you. 

I think that with proper restrictions the man- 
ner of running and stopping cars should be 
regulated by the street-car companies, and 
under rules which should be posted in each 
car. They will make such rules as will ac- 
commodate the great bulk of their patrons, or 
if they fail to have proper rules the public 
will soon force a change. 

I submit herewith an amendatory ordinance 
as a substitute for the one returned, which I 
think better for the public. 

Carter H. Harrison, Mayor. 

Aid. Cullerton moved to reconsider the vote 
by which the ordinance was passed.

Your Committee on Wharves and Public

ment, beg leave to report and recommend the

the Exposition Building, to the Exposition 
Company at a rental of not less than ten thous. 
and dollars, ($10,000.00) per year. 

M. Ryan, 

m Chairman. 

Whereas, The Exposition is a great benefi t to 
the city at large, and as there is no other large 
, building in the criy with capacity suflicient to 
accommodate the large number of people who 
gather annually from Chicago and its sur- 
rounding country to witness the display in 
science and art, in mechanical and agricultural 
branches and in other pursuits; and, 

Whereas, That inasmuch as the occupancy 
of the park by the Exposition Building is in de- 
rogation of the purposes to which the park was 
dedicated, yet in view of its importance to the 
eity and the inexpediency and unadvisability 
of ordering its removal at this time, the com- 
pany ought by reason of the benefits and ad- 
vantages derived by them from its use, to pay 
the city a reasonable sum for rent; therefore 
be it 

Resolved, That the Mayor and Comptroller 
be, and they are hereby directed to enter into 
negotiations with the incorporators or ofircers 
of the company to secure what they may deem 
a fair rental, the same being not less than $10,- 
000 a year for a term of five years, for the use 
of the grounds and such arrangements as may 
be made, to be subject to the rights of the city 
to order the removal of the building whenever 
it shall be so decided by the city authorities 
in the future.

tion building, submitted a report recommend- 
ing that it be placed ©n file.

man of the City of Chicago-it has done much 
for the manufacturers of our city m bringing

with our merchants and manufacturers, and 
Showing to the people of the "Garden of the 
World" our ability to furnish everything they 
require, either in their homes or upon their 
fa " he city is not at present in need of the 
sronnd occupied by the Exposition building,

simmv the will of the city authorities, and they 
are ready and willing t« vacate whenever or- 
dered so to do by the City Council or the 
Mayor That the city should demand and re- 
ceire a fair rental for the ground is just and 
Suitable but for the city to assume the man- 
agement of the building to be run by politicians, 
andTo doubt in the interest of party " a* un- 
dertaking which your committee cannot favor, 
believing as they do that such action is illad^

keeper who shall sell liquor to minors and this 
ordinance imposes a fine upon any minor wh> 
purchases liquor of a licensed saloon keeper. 
Your committee are of the opinion that the 
licensed saloon keepers should be protected as 
well as minors, and it cannot be denied that it 
will furnish additional protection to the minor. 

John H Colvin, 
James Peevey, 
j. j. altpeter, 
O. D. Wethbebll. 
Be it ordained by the City Council , of the City 
of Chicago : 

Section h Any person being a minor or in 
the habit of getting intoxicated, or who shall 
be intoxicated, and who shall purchase or in 
any manner obtain for his or her personal use 
any intoxicating liquor in any licensed saloon 
or grocery, shall upon conviction be fined in a 
sum not exceeding twenty-five dollars ($25.00) 
for the first offense, and in a sum of not less 
than twenty-five (25) nor more than one hun- 
dred (100) dollars for every subsequent offense. 

SEC. 2. Any person being a minor, who shall 
play with dice, dominoes, cards, balls, or other 
articles used in gaming, in any saloon, grocery, 
room or place where intoxicating liquors are 
sold, shall upon conviction be subjected to a 
fine of not less than ten (10) nor more than one 
hundred (100) dollars for each offense. 

Sec. 3. Any person being a minor, who shall 
obtain from the proprietor of any saloon or 
grocery, or from his or her agent or servant, 
any intoxicating liquors under the false pre- 
tense of being then of age, shall upon con- 
viction be fined for each offense in a sum of not 
less than fifty dollars ($50.00). 

Chicago, June 19, 1882. 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of 

Chicago, in Council Assembled : 

A minority of your Committee on Licenses, to 
whom was referred a bill for an ordinance to 
impose penalties on minors and drunkards who 
obtain liquor for their own v. e and to prevent 
minors from playing pool, etc., beg leave to 
report: That he thinks the majority of the 
committee have acted hastily in recommending 
the adoption of the ordinance proposed with 
out giving an opportunity to be heard to a large 
class wno have the best interests of the city at 
heart. 

It was stated to the Committee by Mr. Ru- 
bens, representing the saloon keepers, that Mr. 
Paxton and others of the Citizens League had 
told him they would not oppose the proposed 
ordinance, thus conveying the idea that they 
approved it. He must have misunderstood 
them or they him, for Mr. Paxton and other 
leading mem bei s of the League have told me 
that they believe the effect of the proposed or- 
dinance, should it become a law, would be to 
render inoperative one of the best laws on our 
statute books, viz : the law which gives the 
right to prosecute those who sell liquor to 
minors and drunkards. 

The proposed ordinance I believe to be un- 
wise, for the following reasons: 

L It shuts up, practically, all available 
proofs against the saloon keeper for violation 
of law. 

2. No minor or drunkard will, as a general 
rule, testify to the purchase of liquor from a 
saloon keeper when by that testimony he also 
convicts himself and leads to his own fine and 
imprisonment. 

3. The statute makes no provision for the 
punishment Of the minor but is aimed directly 
at the saloon keeper. It is unwise for the Coun- 
cil to seek to enlace the boundaries of State 
law. Moreover, this very proposition was be- 
fore the legislature, and for the reasons above 
stated was rejected. 

4. The proposed ordinance defeats the prac- 
tical operation of the statute. This should not 
be the aim of the Common Council. Its action 



should be in the direction of furthering and 
aiding the enforcement of the laws of the State. 

For these and other reasons I would recom- 
mend that the whole subject matter be recom- 
mitted, so that those who are opposed to the 
ordinance in its present form may be heard. 

J. M. Wanzer. 

ALSO, 

The same Committee, to whom was referred 
an ordinance concerning billiard and pool 
tables, submitted a report recommending the 
passage of an accompanying ordinance, and 
that the original ordinance be placed on file. 

Aid. Lawler moved that the report be laid 
over and published. 

Agreed to. 

The following is the report : 

Your Committee on Licenses, to whom was 
referred an ordinance concerning billiard table, 
pool table, shooting galleries, etc., having had 
the same under advisement, beg leave to re- 
port and recommend the passage of the accom- 
panying ordinance as a substitute for the origi- 
nal ordinance.

Sec. 3. That no person or persons who keep 
or run pool tables or pool rooms wherein is 
kept or used,' any pool table of any kind what- 
soever, shall permit or allow any minor to play

less than ten dollars nor more than twenty 
dollars for each and every offense, and shall 
further forfeit his license, and any such minor 
so found playing pool in any pool-room in the 
City of Chicago, or frequenting the same, or 
being therein, shall be subject to a fine of not 
less than five dollars nor more than ten dollars 
for each and every offense. 

Sec. 4. That whenever it shall come to 
the attention of the Mayor that any such bil- 
liard or pool room or alley or shooting gallery 
shall become the resort of thieves, dissolute or 
disreputable persons, he may at once revoke 
the license for the same. 

Sec. 5. All ordinances and parts of ordi- 
nances inconsistent with or repugnant to the 
provisions of this ordinance are hereby re-

Dear Sir, — I am in receipt of your communi-

laid." All these streets are in Elston s Addi-

This addition was made and recorded u Apr . 
1855. in May, 1881, the Chicago, Milwaukee and 
St. Paul Railway Company purchased and still 
own in fee simple, all the property on the west 
bank of the north branch canal, north ot Divi- 
sion street and west of Hooker. Neither 
Hooker street, north of Division, nor Rees, 
Blackhawk or Eastman, have ever been opened 
as public streets, or used by the public in any 
manner. There has been no act ot acceptance 
S these streets by the city, but on the con- 
trary, they have been in the exc usive posses- 
sion of this company and its; grantors since 1855 
The company has laid its tracks upon its own 
nronerty The Chicago Land Company own all 
the property on the west side and fronting 
Hooker? north of Division, except a few lots 
occupied by Messrs. Barrett, Arnold and Kim- 
ball. These parties not only assen ted to, but 
requested the company to lay the traces west 
of Hooker. For twenty-six years the city has 
SxSSaed no control over these streets or made 
any inquiry relative to their occupancy until 

fe \%Ckyou will find upon inquiry that the 
publie has no interest in this matter.

Bowing with submission to him whodoeth all 
things well, we, the officials and ex-officials of 
the municipality of Chicago, desire to place this 
memorial of our grief upon record in regard to 
the death of the late Walter Kimball, who 
served as Comptroller of this city from 1865 to 
1869: 

We recognize the fact that in his demise Chi- 
cago has lost a citizen of rare manly virtue and 
integrity, a man who led an unblemished life, 
and who by his sterling qualities drew around 
him a wide circle of friends, who appreciated 
them, and who feel keenly the loss which this 
community has sustained. In all his official 
dealings he was ever true to the people whose 
interests he represented, and he endeavored to 
discharge bis duties faithfully. Never falter- 
ing in his devot ion to his country, he was always 
known as a public spirited and benevolent citi- 
zen, ever having an open hand and a kindly 
word for the poor and suffering. Genial and 
good-hearted, he won the love and esteem of 
those who labored under him. He was a loving 
husband and an affectionate father. 

Resolved, That the City Council be requested 
to spread upon its records this memorial, and 
that a copy of the same be sent to the family of 



the deceased, and that they be published in the 
citv papers. 

Resolved, That members of the City Council

the private ^individuals who have constructed 
it. 

The territory within which Lawndale is sit- 
uated became a part of the City of Chicago by 
an act of the General Assembly, approved 
Feb. 27th 1869, extending the territorial limits 
of the city. Any sewers constructed in the 
public streets or highways of Lawndale, at the 
time the boundaries of the city were extended 
or since, are public sewers, constitute a part of 
the sewerage system of the city, and are sub- 
ject to the control of the city as other sewers. 

The order assumes as a fact that some sewers 
in Lawndale have been constructed by private 
parties. Of this I know nothing, and have not 
been able to obtain any definite or trustworthy 
information in relation to the matter; but if 
sewers have been constructed by individuals in 
the public streets or highways, this would not 
conflict with or alter my conclusions, because 
a sewer constructed in a public street by indi- 
viduals is no more the property of those con- 
structing it, than are pavements made by 
private contract in the public streets the pri- 
vate property of individuals who pay for them.

Office of General superintendent of j 

I OLICB, 0hicagOj IUi> gept< 25> 1882 . j" 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi- 
cago in Council assembled : 
Gentlemen— During an absence of some 
months I visited some of the leading cities ot 
Western Europe, and was afforded opportunity 
for the examination of the various police sys- 
tems in use. It is ' true that the studies thus 
made were necessarily brief as to duration, and 
perhaps incomplete as to details, but I never- 
theless succeeded in securing a large number 
of facts which I esteem of value and a few con- 
clusions which may be of utility in the shaping 
of the management of the police system of the 
City of Chicago. . 

Permit me first to summarize some of the 
facts which I learned in regard to the nature 
of the police control of two or three of the 
larger cities, such as London, Paris and Vienna. 

London, perhaps more than any other city m 
the world, presents the best field for the study 
of \ police system. It is the largest of civil- 
ized cities. It has in its elements almost every 
possible class of human beings, whether re- 
garded from a social or a national standpoint. 
Every nationality is represented; every form 
of religious faith, every political creed, every 
possible division of social life, each extreme of 
wealth and poverty, and all possible phases of 
morality, are to be found in abundance in this 
colossal metropolis. It is, therefore, to be 
inferred that a police management which con- 
trols ihis enormous and diverse population, 
which reduces the commission of offenses to a 
minimum, which has the vicious classes under 
subjection, must be one of a high order, and 
worth a close examination. It will be im possi- 
ble for me, in a report of the brevity which this 
one must necessarily possess, to give you any- 
thing like a complete elaboration of the details 
of the police management of London. I can 
do no more than to call attention to some of the 
more salient points, leaving the ones of less 
prominence to be a matter of inference. 

The management of the police force of the 
metropolis of London is vested in a Board of 
Commissioners, and this board operates under 
laws made by Parliament, and not through 
those made by a municipal body. There is a 
Chief Commissioner, who corresponds to the 
Chief of Police in the American cities; the 
other two Commissioners are known as assist- 
ants. In the order of their rank the force is 
thus arranged: The Chief Commissioner, two 
Assistant Commissioners, four District Super- 
intendents, twenty Superintendents, being 
five to each of the four District Superinten- 
dents, Inspectors, Sergeants, and Constables, 
the term constable being universally used in 
cases where we use the term policeman. This 
force, including all ranks, numbers 11,205 men, 
and who care for nearly 5,000,000 people. 

The area covered by the metropolitan police 
includes the metropolis and the military sta- 
tions and government dock yards. There are 
twenty districts, each of which is designated 
by a letter of the alphabet, and each policeman 
has on the collar of his coat the letter of the 
division to which he belongs, and a number 
which locates the subdivision to which he is 
assigned. The twenty divisions are divided 
into subdivisions which are controlled by In- 
spectors, and each subdivision into sections 
which are under the charge of Sergeants; and 
these again into beats, which are measured and 
are patrolled by the constables. 

A portion of the police force, under thedirec 
tion of an official known as the Director of 
Criminal Investigation, is employed as a detect- 
ive force. In this department is included a 
convict office, which employs one inspector 
and eight officers, and in which are kept " crim- 
inally classified albums of photographs and 
masks of all convicts discharged on license 



and of all persons who are under police super- 
vision." In this department there are kept 
records which show the antecedents of all 
persons who are photographed and under su- 
pervision, and all particulars in regard to their 
conduct which can be obtained. Although 
this department has only been in operation 
about two years, it has already shown itself to 
be of the greatest value in the management of 
the criminal classes. u 

A candidate for the force must send his appli- 
cation in writing to the Chief Commissioner, 
and this application must be accompanied by 
certificates of character by reputable people, 
who aro acquainted with the applicant. Each 
applicant must be less than 35 years of age, 
must be able to read and write; must be intel- 
ligent, and free from any constitutional diffi- 
culty; he must have no more than three chil- 
dren, if a married man; and if he has ever held 
any'public place he must produce a certificate 
as to good character. The conditions of his 
admission to the service are that he shall give 
his whole time to the service; that he is to 
carry on no trade; that his wife is not permit- 
ted to carry on a shop; that he is to pay all his 
debts; that, as a rule, when sick he shall sub- 
mit to a deduction of one shilling a day; that 
there shall be a deduction of one shilling a 
week from his pay, if he be unmarried; that 
he shall not resign unless permitted to do so in 
writing by the superintendent; that he may be 
dismissed the force by the commissioner with- 
out any reason; and that when thus dismissed 
he shall forfeit all pay. 

There are three classes of constables. When 
first appointed a man gets $6 a week: when ad- 
vanced to the second class his pay is increased 
to about $6.75; and when he reaches the first 
class he receives $7.50 per week. In- addition 
to this pav he receives his clothing and equip- 
ments, a certain amount of coal, and lodgings 
when he is a single man. Gratuities are grant- 
ed by the Secretary of State. One month's pay 
may be given after five years' service. After 
thirty years of service, at the age of sixty 
years, a pension equal to three-fifths of the 
pay, and pensions for life of an amount commen- 
surate with the circumstances of the case. 
Any of these pensions may be forfeited in case 
the recipient engages in any act which is un- 
lawful, or in any business which may be 
regarded as disgracef ul or injurious. 

The men are thoroughly drilled in forma- 
tions, marching and facings, and m certain 
cases in the use of the revolver. There is a 
library at each of the twenty divisions, which 
is furnished and kept in repair by a subscrip- 
tion of two cents a month by each5 a member of 
the force. * . J, 

To illustrate the extreme attention to details 
in the system, I may mention that in every 
station there are nearly three hundred blank 
forms to be used in reports, and which refer to 
matters which come under the control of the 

P °Avery important element in the London sys- 
tem is to be found in the carrying out of what 
is known as the "Prevention of Crime Acts, 
and which refer principally to convicts liber- 
ated on license. Such a person is known as a 
"license holder," who has been liberated before 
the expiration of the term of the sentence on 
account of satisfactory behavior in prison. 
There is also another class, a member of which 
is known as a "supervisee," who is a person 
who, having been twice convicted of crime or 
certain specified misdemeanors, is sentenced to 
a term of police supervision in addition to 
whatever punishment may have otherwise 
been inflicted on him. 

Every such "license holder" and "supervi- 
see" is required to notify the Chief of Police m 
the district in which he may be liberated or 
removes to within twenty-four hours. Any 
subsequent change of address must be at once 



Sept. 25,]

[1882. 



communicated to the police head; and if the I 
person under supervision be a male he must 
report himself at least once a month in person 
te a designated member of the force. Frequent 
inquiry is made as to the manner of life of these 
classes, and the requirement is rigid that they 
shall earn their living by honest means. In 
case their conduct is not such as it should be, 
they are liable to summary arrest and to con- 
finement for twelve months with hard labor. 

The value of this form of supervision seems 
to me to be undoubted. I have thus briefly 
outlined some of the more prominent of the 
characteristics of the English police system; 
and from them I beg to present one or two con 
elusions. A constable is most stringently pro- 
tected by the law. If he be assaulted in the 
discharge of his duty, he is amply protected by 
the courts. He is sure of his position so long 
as he performs his duty faithfully, and knows 
that he will get a pension when too old for 
further service, or in case he shall be disabled 
in the discharge of his duty. The number of 
the police force for the protection of the 
metropolis is fully equal to the demand, there 
being one policeman to each 400 of the popula- 
tion, while in Chicago there is but one police- 
man to 1,000 population. The population of 
London is compact, so that it is very much easier 
to care for a thousand men there than for one- 
half that number in a place like Chicago, in 
which there is nothing like solidity in the loca- 
tion of the population. 

As to areas guarded, it may be worth men- 
tion that twelve men in Chicago do the work 
which in London is divided among sixty— a fact 
which needs no immediate comment. 

As to the value of the English police in the 
preservation of order and the repression of 
crime it is not necessary that I should speak, 
as the facts bearing on a conclusion in this 
direction are as well known to the members 
of this council as to anybody. I may simply 
say, in general terms, that the security of 
life and property is all that can be expected; 
and that the detection and punishment of of- 
fences follow the commission in so many 
cases that the exceptions are scarcely worth 
the mention. Of course the efficiency of the 
police contributes very largely to this result; 
but it must not be forgotten or overlooked 
that the police have the cordial assistance of 
i the laws and the courts in their efforts; and 
( that the certainty of the punishment of crime 
does much in assisting in its repression. 

In physical appearance I think that the Lon- 
don constables as a body are inferior to the 
force of this eity. There are among them many 
who would be regarded as being too young for 
police service, and others again who do not 
have the physical development which is found 
among the Chicago force. Our men, in the ave- 
rage, are taller, heavier, and apparently much 
better adapted to cope with the fatigues, 
dangers, and difficulties inseparable from the 
guardianship of a large city. 
As to amount of patrol duty performed, the 
| London constable has the easier place as 
| compared with the Chicago policeman. The 
day duty is performed by two reliefs, the 
first walking the beats from 6 a. m. to 10 a. m. 
and 2 p. m. to 6 p. m. The second relief is on 
duty from 10 a. m. to 2 p. m. and from 6 p. m. to 
10 p. m. The nigh t duty is from 10 p. m. to 6 a. 
m. The first and second reliefs for day duty 
j are changed on alternate days, and the changes 
are so arranged that a constable is on doty two 
| months at night and one month by day. 
I During my stay in Paris, I made such an ex- 
amination of the police system as was possible, 
considering that the French officials are very 
reticent, and that, as a rule, they prefer that 
there should be as little as possible known of 
the details of their methods. The Chief of 
Pelice, or Prefect, seems disposed to confine 
himself exclusively to the exercise of the 



duties of his place, leaving out of consideration 
those professional courtesies common in the 
English speaking countries. In some of the 
broader outlines the English and French police 
systemrf have several points of likeness. 

In Paris, as in London, there are twenty 
divisions of the city, which are known in 
Paris as arrondissements. These are again 
subdivided into quartiers, each arrondissement 
having four of them, so that in the entire city 
there are eighty of these quartiers. Each of 
these quartiers or quarters is named from some 
church, park, public building, or something of 
the kind which may be located within it. In 
each quarter there is a station, which is presi- 
ded over by a Police Commissioner (Commis- 
sionaire de Police), although in some cases one 
commissioner and one station do duty for two 
or thi-ee quarters. 

The Chief of Police of Paris is an official 
known as the Prefect, whose jurisdiction takes 
in not only all of Paris, but one or two depart- 
ments lying outside the city proper. He is ap- 
pointed by a minister of the general govern- 
ment, under whom he exercises his functions. 
He has power to make and promulgate certain 
ordinances relating to the lighting and clean- 
ing of streets, the opening and the closing of 
parks, and alt matters which have reference to 
the preservation of order in the city. The 
personal of the force which he controls consists 
of something over 8,000 men, divided as 
follows: 

First— The administration controle, in which 
there are 280 employes, or clerks, 67 huissiers 
(bailiffs), messengers, etc. 

Second— The commissariat (commissioners), 
composed of 75 commissionaires (commissioners) 
de police; 6 commissionaires de controle, 75 
secretaries, 20 assistant secretaries, 111 inspec- 
tors, and 72 messengers. 

Third— The regular police. 

Fourth— The controle, charged with the 
financial management of the police system, 
and which consists of one Controller-General, 
one secretary, two peace officers, two briga- 
diers, two sub-brigadiers, and thirty-eight 
inspectors. 

In addition to these departments there is a 
number of special departments, such as that of 
the bourse, the markets, wholesale trade, the 
slaughter-houses and butcher shops, registra- 
tion, weights and measures, chemical labora- 
tory, sanitation, and the like, in which there 
is a total of 219 officers and employes. The 
total number of officers and employes under 
the immediate direction of the Prefect of Po- 
lice is 8,538, which does not include the detec- 
tive police, which forms a separate department, 
and which, while auxiliary to the general 
police system, is still to a certain extent in an 
independent position. 

The Police Commissioners are next in author- 
ity to the Prefect, and have the exercise of cer- 
tain powers with reference to the administration 
of the affairs of the city. Their salaries range 
from 5,000 to 8,00J francs per annum, with an 
allowance for clerk hire, rent, and other ex- 
penses. Each of these Commissioners has 
under his charge a strictly-defined portion of 
the city. His power, however, extends to all 
parts of the city, within whose limits he may 
order arrests, doors to be forced when in search 
of criminals or evidence of criminal acts, dis- 
solve disorderly assemblages, and the like. 
He has to attend to the cases of lunatics who 
are to be sent to the asylums; he cares tor 
children who have been unlawfully detained 
from their parents; and, finally, he has a duty 
which is not so familiar to the police officials of 
this country. This is to aid husbands who may 
demand his assistance in establishing the com- 
mission of adultery on the part of their wives. 
This last-named duty is one that he is perhaps 
most frequently called upon to perform,- and 
hence merits a brief notice. A husband who 



Sept. 25,] 



124 



[1882. 



has reason to believe that his wife is engaged 
in a criminal conversation with a lover can, by 
making a declaration to that effect to a Com- 
missioner, procure the immediate attendance of 
that official to verity his suspicions, and to 
order the arrest of the wife and the paramour. 
The Commissioner, accompanied by his beere- 
tarv and as many policemen as he may deem 
warrante d by the case, goes with the husband 
to the place in which it is thought the alleged 
offense is being committed. If admission into 
thS house or the room is denied, the Commis- 
sioner orders the doors to be forced. The hus- 
band having identified his wife, the Secretary, 
under direction of the Commissioner, draws up 
SmhTutcof the proceeding called a "process 
verbale,"in which all the circumstances amid 
which the wife has been discovered are put 
Jown in minutest detail, including the name 
and residence of the person in whose company 

8h Th h i? S docume nt?8igned by the Commissioner 
and retained by him, becomes conclusive evi- 
dence in favor of the husband m any court 
civil or criminal, in which he may conclude to 
institute proceedings. . . 

If the husband demands it, the Commissioner 
mav order the arrest of the wife and her lover, 
who, in that case are sent .before ^the Correc- 
tional Police Court for punishment, but as the 
arrest is optional with the Commissioner, it is 
customary when the husband does net strenu- 
ouslv insist on the arrest, or the lover does not 
Sse to give his name and address, to give 
him his liblrty upon his giving his parole i bat 
he will appear to answer when called on by the 

aU The r expanses of supporting this branch of 
the oolice force are paid by the city of Paris, 
and amount annually to about 1250,000 francs 
or something near $250,000. Chicago may be 
congratulated on being spared taxation for a 
couliderable portion of the duties which have 
iust been enumerated. . o 

The municipal police of Pans demand an 
annual appropriation for salaries alone of about 
10 000,000 of francs ($2,000,000), one-halt of which 
is paid by the State, or general government, 
and the other half by the city of Pans. The 
men are subject to a military discipline, which 
includes the handling of the musket When 
they are not on duty they occupy regular bar- 
racks, where they mount guard and nndwgo the 
same training as if they belonged to the army. 
When on duty in the streets, the French police- 
man is armed with a heavy sword-bayonet and 
a revolver, the latter being carried in his 
pocket. In case of serious rioting the reserve 
turns out, armed with muskets and supplied 
with ball cartridges All the public sqnares 
and market houses have special policemen 
attached to them, who, while under the direc- 
tion of the prefect, do not forma part of the 
regular police force. They are usually old 
soldiers who have been partially disabled, or 
regular policemen who are not quite in a condi- 
tion, from having met with some accident, to 
perform patrol duty. This class, instead of 
being: armed with the sword-bayonet and the 
revolver, have only a dress-sword, which 
is intended for display rather than for 

8e The e regular police force consists of 100 Brig- 
adiers (olptains or lieutenants), 700 •Sows-Briga- 
diers (sergeants), and about 7,000 ordinary 
policemen, known as guardians de paix, or 
agents de police. The Brigadiers receive sal- 
aries ranging from $400 to $600 each; the Sous- 
Brigadiers from $350 to $400 each; and ordinary 
policemen from $300 to $400 per annum. They 
are not liable to dismissal except for miscon- 
duct, and after a certain number of years ot 
service, which varies according to their age on 
entering the force, they are permitted to retire 
on a small pension. Nearly all the members 
of the force have served from three to five 



years in the army before entering the service 
of the police. 

The deteciive police, as has already been 
said, is an entirely separate and independent 
organization. It consists of a Chief, three 
assistants— who are the real detectives properly 
so-called of the association— 230 agents and 
photographers. The Chief receives an annual 
salary of $2,000, each of his assistants $1,600 
per annum, and the agents from $400 to $600, 
according to their length of service in the 
force. In this department the agent is on duty 
sixteen hours of each twenty-four, and has no 
time allowed him unless it be a day or two 
after he has performed some service of unusuul 

Va There is also employed in France another 
police service known as the General Security, 
which is under the direct management of the 
Minister of the Interior. Its duty is the polic- 
ing of the whole of France, with the exception 
of the Department of the Seine. 

Such, in brief, are some of the salient points 
of the system of police control in use in the 
Oity of Paris. I need not call attention to the 
difference in the organization between Pans 
and Chicago, except in so far as it relates to the 
number of men employed. 

Paris has about two millions of people, or 
one policeman to each 250 of the population. 
Chicago has one policeman to each 1,000 of its 
population. The former has about sixty police- 
men to each square mile; Chicago has less than 
one tenth as many to the same area. 

It may be of interest to give very briefly 
some of the details connected with the manage- 
ment and disposition of the force. Each of the 
eighty districts has theoretically about sixty 
men on duty at the same time, but it de- 
ductions be made on account of sickness and 
other causes, the number is reduced to about 
fifty in each district. These are divided into 
three squads, who are each on duty eleven 
hours of each day ; of which, on alternate days, 
seven to eight hours are at night. 

Somewhat like the London system, each 
police district is subdivided into "islands; 
that is, blocks or collections of houses, each 
one of which is under the care of one man. 
The man to whom this duty is intrusted is 
required to pass his time m patrolling his 
"island." ,M 
The Sous-Brigaaier, or Sergeant, is supposed 
to be about, keeping his eye on the men, seeing 
that they are on the move, that tney 
do not drop into the wine shops, or .indulge 
in too long protracted chats with the 
servant girls of their acquaintance. The Brig- 
adier, in his turn, makes occasional trips 
through the quarter to keep an eye on the sous- 

B Tneie e 7s a special detail for the mam boule- 
vards, for the regulation of traffic, but the 
service is performed in a manner very unlike 
the police management of the crossings m an 
American city. The main duty of the Paris 
policeman, who is detailed for the streets, 
seems to be to stand within the "refuges pro- 
vided for the protection of pedestrians. They 
have no orders to protect people against being 
run over by the carriages, or if they have any 
such orders they are neyer carried into eflect. 
There is also a policeman detailed for each car- 
riage stand, who registers, from time to time, 
the numbers of the hackmen on the stand, Dul 
he seems to have no orders to protect the pup- 
lie against the exactions of the cabmen, wno 
are among the most unscrupulous m Europe as 
to their charges, especially in the v*?*.?} 
strangers. There are also details for bans, 
theatres, and even private entertainments 
when there is any danger of confusion from 
the number of people in attendance. Attend- 
ance in the latter case is usually compensated 
for by "pour-boires" (drink money) paid to tue 
policeman.

At night the policemen generally in the 
more dangerous localities move about in pairs. 
Many of the policeman being old soldiers are 
often to be seen wearing many decorations and 
medals of service, among which the badge of 
the Legion of Honor is now and then to be met. 
In addition to their uniform they receive an 
allowance of nearly $10 a month for rent. To 
be married gives a policeman a good position in 
the force, and his w'ife is always very much in 
demand by the owners of properly to fill the 
responsible position of eonceirge. 

Having given so much space to the systems 
of London and Paris, I will touch more briefly 
on some of the more prominent of the features 
of the Vienna police force, and then leave this 
branch of this report. Knowing the more 
salient points of the systems of London, Paris 
and Vienna, one will have a very comprehensive 
knowledge of the systems in use in Central 
and Western Europe, and which will stand for 
the methods employed in all the other States. 

Vienna has a population about twice that of 
Chicago, and to care for this number it has a 
police force which numbers about 2,800 men. 
The city is divided into seventeen police dis- 
tricts, covering an area of about fifty-eight 
square miles. This gives a little over forty, 
nine policemen to each square mile. The 
governing force of the department is rather 
cumbersome, there being a President, a Vice- 
President, twenty board of police members, 
and a large number of commissioners, both 
chief and private, attorneys, inspectors, clerks, 
bailiffs, anct other department officials. The 
sub-divisions of the force include the regular 
patrol, the vault police, ana those who give at- 
tention to sanitary matters. The patrol police 
consists of one General Inspector, four chief 
inspectors, eleven precinct inspectors, twelve 
district inspectors, 100 inspectors of the first 
grade, and the same number of the second 
grade^and 2,120 patrolmen. There are 116 men 
in the vault police, and 46 inthe sanitary police. 

In addition to these there are 65 mounted 
policemen. The duties of the Vienna force in- 
clude many details. They regulate the sale of 
books, papers, journals, and the like, and issue 
licenses in cases of approval. They have the 
regulation of clubs, societies, meetings; they 
have control of the issuing of passports and 
their examination; they regulate intelligence 
offices and servants; they attend to trades and 
to the giving of licenses; they have the over- 
sight of hacks, express wagons, and the inspec- 
tion of theatres and other public buildings, in 
addition to their regular patrol duties on the 
streets. 

The members of the force are a fine body of 
men in appearance. They have a dark blue 
uniform, helmets, and are armed with swords. 

A comparison of some of the points of the 
Vienna and Chicago police forces may be of 
interest. The exact population of Vienna at 
the last census was 1,082,753; that of Chicago, 
503,208; the numerical strength of the Vienna 
police, 2,795; that of Chicago, 506. The last 
annual reports of the two cities show the ratio 
of the police to the population to be, in Vienna 
one policeman to each 387, and in Chicago one to 
each 1,000. The number of arrests made bj the 
Vienna police during the last year reported was 
23,666, the number by the Chicago police 31,713. 
In Vienna the average number of arrests by 
each policeman was nine and a half; by each 
Chicago policeman sixty-two and three-fourths. 
These differences are very marked, and are, I 
think, deserving of close examination on the 
part of the legislative body of this city. 

In reference to the arrests made by the 
police, I have no data in regard to Paris; but 
for the year 1880 in London the average number 
ef arrests made by each member of the force 
was a little less than eight. London has one 
policeman to eaeh 368 of the population; Paris 
one to each 250; and, as said, Chicago one 



policeman to each 1,000 of its population. As 
to the number of policemen to the square 
mile, Chicago has about one-tenth as many as 
Paris and Vienna, and one-fifth as many as 
London. 

In closing this portion of this report I am 
compelled to say— and I do it with the greatest 
pleasure as a tribute due a faithful body of 
men— that I have nowhere seen a finer class of 
men as to physique and intelligent faces than 
those who compose the force of our own city. 
In size, in their bearing when on duty, in their 
appearance, they are the superiors of any of 
the police forces which I anywhere met during 
my absence. 

In concluding this report I would like to add 
that in a trip which extended from May 8 to 
August 30, I had opportunity to visit many 
of the most prominent cities of the Old World, 
and that I returned to Chicago with the con- 
viction that, while we have some things to 
learn from them, we, on the other hand, have 
innumerable points of superiority which they 
might imitate to their own advantage. 

During my absence I saw and gave more or 
or less study to Liverpool, London, Paris, 
Versailles, Strasbourgh, the Cities of the 
Rhine, Berlin, Dresden, Prague, Vienna, 
Saltzburg, Munich, Stutgart. Carlsbad, and 
other German places; Glasgow, Edinburgh, 
Belfast, Dublin, Cork, and many other smaller 
towns. I found m all of them that Americans 
are welcomed and expected. If I mention a 
few of the attentions that were shown me, it 
is not to gratify anything in the nature of per- 
sonal vanity, but to convey to you an idea of 
the extent to which one of your officials was 
honored in his dual capacity as an official, and 
an American. Supt. Williams of the Liverpool 
police force, and Chief Williamson of the fire 
department were kind enough to place them- 
selves at my disposal and to give me all the in. 
formation within their power. Messrs. Wil- 
liams and Shore of Scotland Yard, in London 
were unremitting in their efforts to make my 
stay agreeable, and to afford every desired 
opportunity to examine the workiugs of the 
English system of police. In Paris, United 
States Minister Morton, was exceedingly kind 
in introducing me to French officials, to all of 
whom I am indebted for many attentions. 

I studied somewhat the splendid police of 
Berlin— the best, perhaps, in Europe— and at 
Vienna, under the direction of Chief Commis- 
sioner Applee. I devoted four days to an ex- 
amination of the Viennese department. 

At Carlsbad I was the recipient of many very 
flattering attentions from the mayor of the 
town, Hon. Edward Knoll, and also from Hon. 
Walter Phelps, U. S. Minister to Austria, and 
Mr. Hunt, our Minister to Prussia, both of 
whom were stopping at this famous watering 
place. 

To William Henderson, Chief Constable of 
Edinburgh, I owe much in the shape of unus- 
ual attentions. I was dined frequently by this 
hospitable official, and shown all that my lim- 
ited stay would permit, being shown, among 
other places, through Craigtaook Castle, now 
the property of Mr. Robt. Croall, and famous 
as having been the residence of Lord Jeffries, 
and at one time a favorite place of meeting of 
Sir Walter Scott, Professor Wilson ("Christo 
pher North,") and the leading literary celeb- 
rities of Edinburgh at the beginning of the 
present century. 

The trip has been, I believe, beneficial to me 
in the matter of health and in the knowledge of 
the profession with which I have the honor to 
be connected. 

I beg to return my most sincere thanks for 
the leave of absence so kindly granted me, 
and am, very respectfully yours, 

William J. McGariglb, 

General Superintendent of Police.

Placed on file. 

ALSO, 

The following communication : 

Chicago, October 2, 1882. 
To the City Council of the City of Chicago : 

I herewith return to your honorable body 
without my approval, an order passed Septem- 
ber 25, 1882, directing the sum of $3,000 to be 
taken from the contingent fund, to be paid for 
signs on street lamps at street corners. 

The contingent fund has been so much re- 
duced by necessary expenditures that it is 
necessary to be as economical as possible in 
the expenditure of the balance to the credit of 
the fund in view of future emergencies which 
may arise. The sum of $3,000 may not be nee 
essary for the purpose specified in the order, 



nor could that amount be judicially expended 
this season m any event. I therefore suggest 
an amendment of the order by inserting therein, 
immediately after the word "dollars," the 
words, "or so much thereof as, in the opinion of 
the Commissioner of Public Works and the 
Mayor, may be necessary." 

The order amended as indicated would not 
in my opinion be objectionable.

if His Honor the Mayor submitted his report of 
pardonsfrom the House of Correction, during 
the week ending October 14th, which was 

i Placed on file. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message : 

Mayor's Office, I 
Chicago, October 14, 1882. j 
To the City Council of the City of Chicago : 

I hereby return to you without my approval 
an ordinance in relation to minors, etc, passed 
Oct. 9, for the following reasons: Section 1 of 
said ordinance is as follows; Any person being 
a minor or in the habit of getting intoxicated, 
or who shall be intoxicated, and who shall pur- 
chase, offer to purchase, or in any manner ob- 
tain for his or her personal use any intoxicat- 
ing liquor in any licensed saloon or grocery, 
shall, upon conviction, be fined in a sum net 
exceeding $25 for the first offense, and in a sum 

I 



16, 1882. 



of not less than $25 nor more than $100 for every 
subsequent offense. 

I assume that you aim at the suppression 
of intoxication and at restraining minors from 
frequenting saloons, and not at the infliction 
of punishment. The mere purchasing of 
liquors in saloons by these persons is not in 
itself a wrong, much less is it a crime, and 
therefore should not subject the offender 
to vindictive penalties, But such procuring of 
liquor may lead to real wrongs and to crimes, 
and therefore shoud be prevented if possible. 
Drunkenness is a degrading vice, but no class 
of society is free from it, and a fine, such as the 
minimum fixed in section 1, would often fall 
not simply as a punishment upon the offender, 
but in case of adults, upon his or her friends, 
and family, and where a minor should be en- 
ticed by other boys into a saloon, not he, but 
his parents would be the sufferers by a fine of 
$25. I am opposed to excessive fines in all 
offenses of this character. They simply render 
the whole ordinance nugatory, and in cases 
where minors are the offenders, the magistrate 
should be clothed with a parental discretion. 
Often times a reprimand for the first offense is 
quite sufficient, and in second offenses the 
Justice should not be bound by a cast-iron rule 
making a heavy minimum fine obligatory. A 
boy may enter a saloon on a species of boyish 
frolic. He may even repeat the offense. His 
fine under this ordinance must be $25. The 
parent who may be illy able to pay such a fine 
will be compelled to do so or leave his child to 
the degrading associations of the House of 
Correction, Restraint of incorrigible boys is 
wholesome, and careless parents who permit 
their children to run wild ought to snffer, but 
my observation leads me to believe that in the 
majority of cases the parents are not so much 
to be blamed that they should be forced to pay 
so heavy penalties. Give the magistrate a 



Oct. 16,] 



146 



[1882. 



large discretion, and see to it that gnod men are 
placed upon the bench and the public interests 
will be properly subserved. 

I suggest that you amend the ordinance by 
striking out from section 1 the words "less than 
twenty-five dollars nor." For the same reasons 
in section 2 strike out the words "less than ten 
nor" and in section 3 strikeout the word "less 
and insert in lieu thereof the word "more." 

I am urged t<> veto this ordinance because, 
without the testimony of the persons offend- 
ing, and particularly the minors, saloon- 
keepers who harbor minors cannot be pun- 
ished. This argument to me is not good. 
It is bad for a minor to drink in and to fre- 
quent saloons, but it is far worse for him 
to use him as a spy. I can hope for the 
reclamation of a dissipated youth, but I should 
despair of his future should he deliberately go 
into a saloon as a spy for the purpose of being 
used as a witness. This is bad enough in a 
grown detective whose principles are formed, 
but would be destructive to the morals of an 
unformed boy. I sincerely hope that there are 
few men among us who, claiminga desire to see 
our youth properly reared, would lead one of 
them to practice a lie for the purpose of pun- 
ishing some one else. If boys are harbored by 
vicious saloon-keepers an ordinance leaving a 
proper discretion in the breast of the magistrate 
will not prevent such boys from being witness- 
es. I therefore return the ordinance and re- 
commend that it be properly amended, 

Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Lawler moved to reconsider the vote by 
which the ordinance was passed.

ALSO, 

The following veto message: 

Mayor's office, ) 
Chicago, Oct. 16, 1882. S 

To the City Council of the City of Chicago : 

Your Honorable body passed, October 9, 1882, 
an order of which the following is a copy: 

Ordered, That the Department of Public 
Works be and are hereby directed to grant a 
permit for the walling, filling, grading and 
paving of Franklin street, from Illinois street 
to Kinzie street, to the same contractor who is 
now doing the work on said street, between 
Illinois and Ontario streets, and to allow said 
contractor to proceed with the work without 
delay, between said Illinois and Kinzie streets, 
and the Department of Public Works are 
instructed to pay the said contractor for the 
city's part (two alleys) the same prices which 
they are now paying said contractor for the 
aforesaid section of the work, and- to issue 
vouchers for the same, the contractor to pay 
for engineering and superintending. 

I am satisfied that this order was passed 
inadvertently, and herewith return it without 
my approval for the following reasons: 

The order does not provide for any contract 
with any one, or fix any price to be paid for any 
portion of the work, except the city's portion, 
which is a very small part of the work. It 
merely directs a permit to do the work to be 
issued to the sime contractor who has a con- 
tract for work on Franklin street, between 
Illinois and Ontario streets, viz: B. Herrington. 

But even though the order directed a contract 
and fixed a price, it would, in my opinion, be 
objectionable. The Charter (Rev. Ord., Sec. 165.) 
provides that all contracts for the making <h 
any public improvement to be paid for in whole 
or in part by special assessment, and any work 
or other public improvement, when the ex- 
pense thereof shall exceed $500, shall be let 

to the lowest responsible bidder, in the manner 



Ocl. 16.] 



147 



[1882. 



to be prescribed bv ordinance. An ordinance 
has been passed for the improvement in ques- 
tion, providing it shall be paid for by special 
assessment, and the estimated cost of the work 
is $4637, The assessment has not yet been made. 

While it is true th \ t the Council has power 
by a vote of two-thirds of all the aldermen 
elected, to authorize the Commissioner of Pub- 
lic Works to make a contract for work, the cost 
of which will exceed $500 without advertising 
for bids, it is, to say the least, very doubtful 
whether the Council can virtually make a con- 
tract itself by peremptorily fixing the price 
and directing the Commissioner to let it at the 
price so fixed. 

Money collected by special assessment is a 
trust fund and can only be applied for the pur- 
pose for which it is levied and by the express 
terms of the charter, if two large a sum be col- 
lected it must be refunded ratably to those by 
whom it was paid. Persons paying assessments 
therefore have an interest in the econom- 
ical expenditure of the money paid by them, 
and no reason is perceived why they should be 
deprived of the advantage of competitive bid- 
ding for the work, by the Council arbitrarily 
fixing the price.
